Chapter 1552: Perfected Hou
“What are you doing!?”
Divine General Skyjade was alarmed. For this attacker to inject his psyche into the White Jade Phoenix Palace, could it be that he was trying to snatch the White Jade Phoenix Palace for himself!?
“You are not Heavenly Cosmic! Who… are you!?”
Divine General Skyjade was certain that the Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord in front of him was completely different from the one in his memories.
Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord let out a sinisterly cold laughter. “It’s naturally me. It’s just that I have now become a brand new person compared to who I was before.”
As Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord spoke, he slowly exerted force with the hand which was inside Divine General Skyjade’s chest. He grabbed his beating heart.
Divine General Skyjade let out a painful cry.
Lingluo was burning with anxiety, but no one from the White Lunar Divine Empire dared to move.
On the one hand, Divine General Skyjade was at Heavenly Cosmic’s mercy, and any action they took might result in him being harmed; and on the other hand, there were few left in the entire White Lunar Divine Empire entourage who could battle. Even Imperial Preceptor Kun Xu had been previously injured by Yi Yun. He had also suffered a sneak attack.
There was now only Imperial Preceptor Lingluo, but it was impossible that she could match Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord.
At that moment, Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord was still injecting a mental imprint into the White Jade Phoenix Palace.
“Indeed… Lord Demon Master is right. Bai Yueyin is not dead. Her mental imprint is still inside the White Jade Phoenix Palace. It’s just extremely weak. According to Lord Demon Master, Bai Yueyin’s soul has already escaped, and is hiding in the soul sea of that girl named Lin Xintong!”
Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord thought inwardly as his eyes turned ferocious.
“Patron, it looks like you have been possessed by demons!” Eclipse Arhat held his staff as he slowly walked out of the crowd.
“Hehe, Bald Donkey, do you think you are my match?”
As Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord spoke, he roared out loud. A black storm erupted from his body as a large number of shadows flew out in all directions.
These shadows were humanoid in shape, but their faces were ghastly pale and dotted with bloodshot eyes. They looked like they crawled out from Shura hell.
“Oh? This is?”
Eclipse Arhat was surprised. Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord had opened up a world inside his body, and this world contained thousands of evil spirits.
“These are… demonic servants!?”
Eclipse Arhat’s heart sank. The Mahayana Monastery had been in existence for a long period of time. It also had a collection of ancient texts, and as abbot of the Mahayana Monastery, Eclipse Arhat had read each and every one of them. The numerous evil spirits which surrounded Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord were clearly the demonic servants as recorded in the texts!
Legend had it that in primordial times, numerous Godly Monarchs once fought a powerful god in a life-and-death battle, a battle that determined the fate of the Sinkhole. Although the Godly Monarchs clinched victory in the end, many of them suffered grave injuries or even death from the battle. Nearly all of them perished.
And back then, the god’s demonic army was made up of these demonic servants!
Over the hundreds of millions of years since that battle, there had been appearances of pockets of demonic servants in various places. These demonic servants were members of the demonic army which had been in existence since ancient times. They laid somewhere in slumber, and when awakened, would wreak havoc. However, they usually did not amount to much.
But this time, these demonic servants were hidden inside Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord’s body!
Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord was a Sinkhole hegemon who was equal to Primordial Chaos Daolord. The fact that a Sinkhole hegemon was in cahoots with demonic servants gave Eclipse Arhat an ominous foreboding. Perhaps, the Sinkhole was on the cusp of a calamity.
Could it be that the god which was defeated in ancient times was making another uprising?
If that were the case, who could stop him?
There were numerous Godly Monarchs in ancient times, but now, the number of Godly Monarchs in the Sinkhole only amounted to a handful. Furthermore, nearly all of them reclused themselves!
“West River, join forces with me to take him down!”
Eclipse Arhat knew that he alone was no match for Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord. It was unknown what evil powers this Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord had been cultivating over the past million years. His strength had increased tremendously. A single sneak attack was enough to rob Sacred Horizon Divine Lord of all his combat strength. Eclipse Arhat knew he was not capable of such a feat.
“This…” West River Divine Lord had a nasty expression. He could tell that tens of thousands of demonic servants had flown out of from the pocket world in Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord’s body!
These demonic servants all released powerful auras like they were specters from a netherworld’s abyss. It left his scalp tingling!
They were at least at the level of Dao Palace realm, with some having reached the Supremacy realm!
West River Divine Lord was afraid. He would not care if demonic servants of this strength came in hordes of hundreds or thousands, but now, there were tens of thousands of these demonic servants gathering around Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord. They were in intricate positions and had formed a huge worldly array!
And right in the middle of the array was the White Jade Phoenix Palace!
Could it be that Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord was trying to take the White Jade Phoenix Palace!?
Speaking of which, now that Lin Xintong was gone, and she was still a fledgling, her refinement of the White Jade Phoenix Palace was not thorough. It was not impossible, if they took action now, to snatch the White Jade Phoenix Palace!
However, why would they want to snatch the White Jade Phoenix Palace?
“West River, why are you still hesitating!?” Eclipse Arhat yelled angrily.
There were few people in the Sinkhole who could fight at present. Yet, West River had not chosen to join forces with him.
“Master Eclipse, I’ll aid you!”
Exalted Bluefeather walked forward at that moment.
“Master!” Fairy Yourou’s heart tightened. She never imagined that so many unexpected turns of events would happen at a mere coronation.
At that moment, there was a maniacal laughter. A tall figure dressed in black combat armor rushed out from Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord’s body.
The person was 2.5 meters. His body was as stout as a metallic tower. His arms were coiled in black chains and his body was burning with demonic flames.
His body was extremely heavy. Just a step from him was able to cause the hundred thousand pavilion palaces’ ground to crack simply from his weight.
Eclipse Arhat’s pupils constricted. He could sense a terrifying suppressive force from the person who suddenly appeared!
He was a demonic servant! However, he was a demonic servant leader. He had a nearly humanoid body and face. If not for the rough black skin which had scaled armor on it, he could really be considered as human.
“Let me introduce myself. I’m the Divine Master’s Demonic General Perfected Hou 1 Hou A Hou is also known as a Denglong, a Chinese legendary creature said to be one of the sons of the Dragon King. The Denglong has ten characteristics that resembles animals: horns like a deer, head like a camel, ears like a cat, eyes like a shrimp, mouth like a donkey, hair like a lion, neck like a snake, belly like a Shen, scales like a koi, front paws like an eagle, and rear paws like a tiger.
. My master is destined to descend upon the Sinkhole. None of you have the means to resist him. Submit early and you will be spared!”
Perfected Hou’s voice sounded like rumbling thunder. It left a ringing buzz in everyone’s ears. His tone was somewhat odd, as though it was a particular ancient language of the Sinkhole.
“Demonic General Perfected Hou, our mission is to take possession of the White Jade Phoenix Palace. Let’s not waste our time with these people,” said Heavenly Cosmic Divine Lord. He had inflicted grave injuries on Sacred Horizon Divine Lord with his sneak attack only so the process would go smoother.
To the Divine Master, as long as he recovered his strength, all the people in the Sinkhole were like porcelain dolls. Destroying them took little effort.
Perfected Hou laughed sinisterly. With a thought of his, the tens of thousands of demonic servants around the White Jade Phoenix Palace ignited. Stunning black beams of light emitted from their bodies!
They were offering up their Demonic Qi Origins!
Some of the weaker demonic servants even burned to ashes from the black flames!
